    Well, not as bad as the slider design, but I think the most efficient and best solution to the notch clearly is the semi transparent display with the camera behind, for obious reasons.

    I thought all smartphones were gonna have night vision and it would dual serve as an IR blaster.
    I'm a pretty good futurist, I've got a picture of an iPad I drew in the early 2000 after Steve Jobs said they weren't working on a tablet computer, I said bullshit and drew it. (The buttons were more kindleish for that reason, I basically ripped it off of Star Trek.)
    But I got the IR/night vision part wrong. It's so cheap. The only reason I can think they didn't do it might be cause it was falling out of vouge and people figured out you could vaguely see through some clothes and there was a minor freak out over that.

    PROBLEM SOLVED! I have no clue why there isn't a super fancy all-screen phone that just doesn't have a notch, or a bezel, or a camera.

    I am in the army and crew on helicopters. IR blasters are really annoying when flying at night! They are SUPER bright under Night Vision Goggles even if they are in your pocket. I can't tell you how many times someone I work with has looked towards me and said "Hey, you have your light on in your pocket!"

    The camera just needs to be behind the screen, then the screen dims the area of the camera to let light trough to the sensor.

    i guess? seems like a lot for a little. it's kind of cool but i'd rather have either that cool manual slider thing or small bezels for the sake of minimalism. i lean towards the latter with badass front facing stereo speakers. and yes, freaking ir blaster.

    Why... why does everybody insist on using milliamp hours? 3200 milliamp hours (9 syl), is 3.2 amp hours (5 syl). Do we say "I'll be there in 3600000 milliseconds"? No. We say "I'll be there in an hour". Do we say "its about 3200 millikilometers"? No. We say "its about 3 klicks". So, why? Why? It a maka no sense.

    I always wanted a little module in the top of the phone that houses the camera/s and flash that rotates letting you use the same camera for front and rear camera, also you could have a 'stealth mode' that makes the camera point directly up so you can film/take pictures whilst keeping your phone flat and not being a dead give away as someone taking a photo of you. A little creepy but there are many not creepy uses for it such as getting a picture/light in a narrow gap or taking photos with the camera super close to a wall or the floor which is cool and it would make using your phone as a torch a lot easier to hold and you could put your phone in your mouth and use the torch easily.
    Sorry this whole thing hasn't been wrote out very well, feel free to correct me

    Ok I Like the dual screen idea. Neat. That being said the absolute hate of the notch is so odd to me as I find no problem with it. Time and battery and small icons just go to either side of the notch.
